Well, as you can see by the title of my post, Raoul has talked me into writing another blog. I really don't think I'll ever get into the habit of this. I'm simply not someone who journals. Ah well. I suppose the occasional blog will have to do. Read more about He talked me into posting another blog....

Raoul and I made a deal- he'd post about the wedding, and I'd post about the honeymoon. I still think he took the easy way out by referring to the pictures, but I suppose I can't complain because I'd gladly take the same opportunity. However, since it will be a while until we have the honeymoon pictures up on the site, I'll have to take the long way around. Read more about The Honeymoon...

I got some rather bothersome news regarding my wedding dress this past week. Irene had to send off to the states for the steel boning needed to make my dress, and when it finally got here, it turns out they sent her the wrong sized tips for the boning, so she won't be able to use it for my dress, and she'll have to use the plastic boning instead! Fortunately they will send her the right ones and not charge her for it, but it won't get here in time for her to use it for my dress. I'm sure it will all work out fine, but it is frustrating, especially for Irene. Read more about Eureka!...

Just to elaborate a little on Raoul's post, we did indeed get the paperwork to get a spousal visa. Now, reading his post, you might ask yourselves the question, "How can they get a spousal visa when they aren't spouses yet?" GOOD QUESTION!

Please forgive my lack of blog entries. Expounding all the details of my personal life has never been a strength of mine. Read more about Here comes the bride...in 3 months...

One of the questions I've heard most since arriving here is "So how are you finding South Africa/ Cape Town?" Weeeeeelllll...I looked it up on Google Earth once, seen it on maps and the globe of course, then a plane flew me here, so I just sat there and let the pilot find it, and since I can't drive, I just let Raoul find it now. Despite the fact that I've yet to find CT on my own except on a map, I'm loving it.  (For you American readers, "how are you finding..." is another way of asking "how do you like..")

Yep, it's my birthday! Today I am nineteen. This is probably the most birthday wishes I've ever received in my life...and the majority of them are from South Africa- how cool is that? You people are awesome!

Well, as everyone can tell by now, unlike Raoul, I'm a lazy blogger. I've just never been the type to regularly post things. It's not for lack of time or any valid reason either. Mostly I think I just don't have a whole lot to write about. Ah well...perhaps I'll learn in time.

Packing has been going very well! I have one suitcase completely packed, and one suitcase about halfway done. If it weren't for the fact I still need clothes the next few days it would probably be done as well, hehe. Read more about Lazy Blogger...

I will arrive in Cape Town 4 weeks exactly from tomorrow! Yes, I'm VERY excited! Yesterday I sorted through all my books and got rid of the ones I'm not bringing- A LOT!- but I'm also keeping quite a few as well. I'll bring over as many as I can, and then Mom will bring the rest when the family comes for the wedding. I simply can't be without my books. There are times when Raoul won't be home, and I will need my books, hehe. Read more about Rings and things...
